What bird hunters - and their dogs - should put in their mouth and why, fitness tips for both of us!

July 23, 2020

Former pro football player, strength and conditioning coach, hunter, Lab owner, Mark Paulsen now devotes his considerable energy to WildernessAthlete.com. His supplements and other products were originally conceived to help hunters perform better under the stresses they encountered in the field.

Now, he's helping our four-footed friends achieve peak performance, too. From hydration to nutrition, exercise to performance psychology, Mark has advice of all types for those of us who put one foot in front of the other in pursuit of game birds - and bird dogs.

We cover the two critical exercises for bird hunters, timing of supplements and what to look for in nutritional products, how they work, how you and your dog can better recover for a second-day hunt.

Plus, "This Land is Your Land" helps you narrow down your chukar-hunting search, and in the "Handle It" segment, how where you train is as important as what you train, and of course, a chance to win a Pointer shotgun.
